Following Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement yesterday, only shops selling essentials such as food and medication may remain open in a bid to curb the spread of coronavirus.

Supermarkets, pharmacists, pet shops, hardware stores and newsagents will remain open, and people are advised to only leave the house when necessary.

In a statement to customers, Meadowhall bosses said: “Your health and safety is our top priority and we are doing everything we can to support you during this difficult time.


“Following government guidance, all non-essential stores at our centre are now temporarily closed until further notice.

“The policies and opening times of individual stores will vary - so we always recommend checking directly with retailers prior to setting off.

“Please be assured that enhanced cleaning regimes remain in place, particularly of key touchpoints.

“We’d like to thank you for your continued support and patience.”
